Haydon Wick Primary School For Parents

Hedgehogs (Year 2/3)

Hello and a warm welcome from Mrs Adams

We are a class of Year 2 and Year 3 children. The class teacher is Mrs Adams and the teaching assistants are Mrs Bulley (Monday to Thursday mornings) and Mrs Winrow (every day).

We have had a great time learning about Florence Nightingale, Mary Seacole and George Stephenson in T3, and we are looking forward to meeting more famous people in T4.

Here is some information you may find useful. Please ask me if you have any questions, preferably after school rather than before.


Reading starts in term 1, week 1. Other homework starts gradually but is fully in place by the end of term 1.


Please read school reading book 4-7 times a week to an adult please.


There will be spellings to learn most weeks, tested on Fridays. The words to learn should be at the front of the spelling book, with the tests at the back.


Number bonds or times tables to learn, tested on Fridays. The children will be tested on their most recent set of number bonds/times tables on a sticker inside mental maths book.

Times Tables Rockstars

The children will continue to use this website to reinforce their maths skills. It has been very successful so far. Click here to access.

Pick and Mix Homework

In addition to the essential homework listed above, pick and mix homework is given near the beginning of each term, with a choice of activities. Children should do at least one activity and can do as many as they like.

Pick and mix homework should be brought into school on the date given on the homework sheet and parents and carers are welcome into the class room at the end of that day to see what the children have done. Pick and mix homework sheets will be sent home and can be accessed on the Class Updates page.

What will you need in Hedgehogs class?


Your child will need this every day so they can change their book if it is finished and in case it is their turn to read.

Water and Snack

  • All children should bring a water bottle to school. They should take it home each day to wash it and refill it.
  • At morning break Year 2 children have a snack of fruit or vegetable as provided by the government.
  • Year 3 children may bring a healthy snack to eat at break time.

PE Days

Children should always have a full PE kit in school every day as we sometimes take the opportunity to do PE on any day.

Current regular PE days are Wednesdays and Thursdays. Year 3s will be swimming later in the school year.

PE kit is black shorts, coloured tshirt according to your child’s owl house and daps, and socks if children are wearing tights. As the weather gets colder, children may use jogging bottoms rather than shorts for outdoor PE.

Coats and sweatshirts/cardigans

Children love to work out of the classroom, and we like to get outside as much as possible. Please can your child bring a waterproof coat or jacket to school every day except in a blazing summer heatwave. Please make sure all clothes are clearly labelled with your child’s first and last names to help us return stray clothes to their owners.

A positive attitude to learning - It will make a lot of difference!

Parents and carers are very welcome to talk to me after school. You can ask any day; if I have a meeting we can plan another time.

Mrs Adams
